The default UI with add-ons thrown in, my computer can’t handle anything more. :/ I’m mainly just putting screenshots to show how some of the add-ons look.



Name: Omen (about)
Does: Like a damage meter, except it records your threat. By monitoring all the abilities you use and checking your talents, armour set bonuses and buffs, the addon can recreate the threat list of a mob. This makes tank transitions simple, and allows DPS to maximise their damage without pulling aggro. Other party members MUST have this or KTM in order for it to work.
I use on: All characters

Name: SWStats
Does: Records damage and healing done. Syncs with other party or raid members who have it to make sure the stats are as correct as possible.
I use on: All characters

Name: FuBar
Does: Adds a control panel/info bar on the screen that is highly customizable. Allows for plug-ins that display important information such as durability, money, bag space, latency, frames per second, location, xp, clock, motes, ammo status, and top scores in real time.
I use on: All characters

Name: BankItems (about)
Does: An addon that remembers the contents of your bank, bags, mail and equipped and display them anywhere in the world. Also able to remember/display the banks of any character on the same account on any server, as well as searching and exporting lists of bag/bank items out.
I use on: All characters

Name: Quartz (about)
Does: Lightweight implementation of a standard casting bar, with configurable size, text and icon positioning, and colors.
I use on: All characters

Name: Auctioneer
Does: Displayes item info and analyzes auction data. Stores auction information and allows you to see over time what the “average” price range is for an item on your server and faction. Helps greatly with selling as well.
I use on: All characters, however, due to a pretty crappy computer and Auctioneer the main add-on takes a lot of memory, I only use portions of the pack on each character. All of them have Informant, Bean Counter, and EnhTooltip turned on, but only my bank alts have Auctioneer itself on.

Name: CTMod
Does: A collection of very useful mods that let you do many things.
I use on: All characters, however, I only have certain parts: Core, ExpenseHistory, MailMod, and MapMod.

Name: AtlasLoot Enhanced
Does: Displays all loot from instances, raids, PvP and faction reputation.
I use on: Used only on bank characters to save memory.

Name: Equip Compare
Does: Compare items with ones you have equiped. This is partially done by the default Blizzard UI now, but this does it all the time without you having to hold Shift or anything.
I use on: All characters

Name: Gazmik Fizzwidget’s Adspace
Does: Helps you save money by not buying marked-up vendor recipies on the AH and points out other useful item info such as if an item is used as a reputation turn in on the tooltip.
I use on: Bank characters

Name: ItemRack
Does: Allows you to set up item sets so that you can switch easily between them. Great for classes that have seperate gear sets for different things (healing, damage, tanking, etc.)
I use on: All characters

Name: LevelSnap
Does: Automatically snaps a screenshot when you level.
I use on: All non level 70 characters (I wish I’d found it sooner!)

Name: RatingBuster (about)
Does: Item stat breakdown, analysis and comparision.
I use on: All characters (I especially love it for my hunter as they have sooo many stats to balance.)

Name: Grid (about)
Does: A modular, lightweight and screen-estate saving grid of party/raid unit frames.
I use on: All characters

Name: Clique
Does: Clique is a simple GUI that lets you assign click-casting for any number of unit frames. Click casting allows you to define the behavior the game takes when you click on a frame. This can be casting spells, running a macro, using an item, or something as simple as changing targets or assisting a unit. I use it with Grid only: healing, hunter Misdirects, etc.
I use on: All characters

Name: Deadly Boss Mods
Does: Provides boss mods for all raid bosses with status bars for all timers.
I use on: All raiding characters

Name: ora2 (about)
Does: oRA2 is a lightweight CTRaidAssist replacement. It contains everything a raider needs apart from raidframes. It is fully compatible with the messages CTRaidAssist sends.
I use on: All raiding characters

Name: Kharthus’s Hunter Timers
Does: Times hunter’s buffs/debuffs.

Name: Gazmik Fizzwidget’s Hunter’s Helper
Does: Helps you find tameable beasts to learn pet skills from. If an animal that you mouse over has a skill, it’s added to their tooltip when you mouse over them. With commands you can also find out where and what from you can learn skills (/hh find SkillName Rank).

Name: AntiDaze
Does: Cancels Aspect of the Cheetah or Aspect of the Pack when you or a party memeber gets dazed so that it doesn’t happen repeatedly.

Name: Nudge
Does: Range indicator. Very simple, but I’ve come to rely on it.

Name: FeignResistBell
Does: Rings a bell if feign death is resisted. Also displays a very noticeable feign resist error message.

Name: PallyPower (about)
Does: Provides an interactive and interface that allows you to control assignments of blessings for yourself and, if you are a party leader or an assistant, for other paladins in your group or raid. Can be a bit confusing at first, but is awesome for us in raids.
